It varies depending on whether I need to buy cleaning products, laundry products, dog food, have to stock up the freezer etc but it is between £40‐55 for the 3 of us. We don't get takeaways or have coffee.

InaShah I make sure that I utilise my freezer to the max. If I see something that we can use that is Orange stickered I will buy it and freeze it. We also use up left overs for lunch and have very little food waste. We cook from scratch 90% of the time, which helps keep costs down.

Ours works put around £50 per week. But we do a fortnightly 'big' shop (£60/70ish) and then a small top up in between (£20ish)

Then a monthly loo roll and cleaning shop approx £10/15 in home bargains

InaShah I really recommend having frozen veg in your freezer. It's not expensive to buy and means you aren't worried about it going off.

We cook mostly from scratch and reasonably healthy with lots of of veg and it's not thst expensive. Using beans and pulses is another way to be healthy and keep costs down.

To me taste and flavour with herbs and spices is a must!

My husband does the shopping and he said on average it's about £70 per week. He does a large freezer shop and a large grocery shop, but also does a weekly shop for fresh fruit and veg, milk bread etc.

That’s a difficult one to answer because this week I’ve started buying extras for Christmas plus my husband bought me 6 bottles of my favourite wine.

On average for 2 adults I'd say we probably spend around £40.

Hard to say as I buy a lot from Amazon, and stores like heron or Fulton foods. If I have to spend £30 in a store it can be a real challenge. Two adults and three children I estimate about £50 per week.

Your bill is what it is ! One thing we all must realised is that it has gone up by 10% in the last month and likely to go up another 10% in the next couple of months ! A fact of life .

Golfforall I love Linda Burgers and sausages too. As grateful as I am that more people are being veggie.... I miss those days when it was far cheaper to be veggie....

InaShah Must admit ,though I'm not on a budget - I won't pay £2 for stuff that is often on offer for £1 . I'll wait another week and stock up the freezer . I'm not 100% veggie ,but I prefer veggie stuff and love the Minced Steak Vegan Pukka Pies . Bought 10 this week as they were £1 "down " from £2 🙄.

Golfforall Doing that now too..... The benefits of a larger Fridge and Freezer is you can stack up and batch cook properly! I know, I know about the ice coffee.... was more disciplined before but will get back to that!
